    Recently, my Tivo Series 2 has developed a problem: if I leave it paused for a while (I'm not sure how long, but it seems to be hours not minutes, or at least not 10 minutes or or), the unit is unresponsive when I come back. The screen still shows the recording, paused where I left it, but the unit will not respond to the remote. The light on the front that usually indicates that it can "see" the remote also does not light up. I have to unplug the unit and let it reboot in order to get it working again.

    This occurs with Tivo GoBack programs or with programs recorded by the Tivo that have never been moved.

    Has anyone else experienced this, or better even have a solution?

    Just as a followup, it turned out the problem was a dying Drive A in my Tivo. :( The poor thing completely bit the dust a few days later, after a GSOD. I did manage to resurrect it with a new drive.
